She Came Down from the Sky

Mountains and Rivers 383

The Creator sent him love,

she came down from the sky,

stepped into his heart,

never truly understanding,

how great she was,

what much she meant to him.

A white dress,

a ring, and a promise,

more important to him,

than breathing,

the waves made sense now,

the woods spoke healing,

the leaves breathing peace,

all because of her light,

reflecting the sun,

when she came down,

from the sky.

Early Morning Dunes

Old Photos 127

Seagulls barely awake,

and you call to me,

we dress quietly,

and slip out the door,

too late for the sunrise,

not too late for solitude.

Our two souls on the beach,

absorbing, the energy,

of the moment,

like the first humans,

meditating, on the power,

of waves,

grateful, to be here,

two together,

as we embrace,

in the early morning dunes.

On the Deck

Maine and More 300

As we ride the waves,

further off the coast,

the horizon of infinity,

seems closer.

What is it about the ocean,

that makes us cry?

Your eyes filled with tears,

ready to launch,

as my heart sinks,

looking at your face,

I realize, I was wrong,

like I often am.

Tossed,

as the boat picks up speed,

I want to break my own heart,

can I reach out?

will you pull back?

I risk a kiss,

on your forehead,

as we hold on to the railing,

the words come out softly,

will you forgive me?

I’m sorry I was angry.

You hesitate,

and risk everything, accepting my embrace,

as the sky meets the ocean,

we are one again,

falling into each other’s arms,

healed,

through forgiveness.

The Red

Mountains and Rivers 132

I will never forget,

the red bursting,

calling me,

 to live with her,

to look deep inside,

and to forsake all others,

including the yellow,

to know,

there really is a peace,

from above,

a love,

that lasts forever,

that colors live,

in the universe.

I will always be grateful,

for the red.

In the Shadows

Maine and More 164

When the sun is on the other side,

the rocks cast a shadow,

and I notice you again,

with the background of the waves,

I will never forget,

your face in the wind,

on this rugged coast,

tenderness, and beauty, in the rocks,

pine trees surrounding the queen,

royalty of gentleness,

with a walking stick,

and a smile.

I know it’s time to give in,

no more hiking.

Did you know you had red in your hair?

Wait! Another picture, turn to the side,

yes hold that,

beautiful!

I love the way the shadows,

play with your color, your skin.

You are the most beautiful scenery,

I have ever seen.

Blessings to everyone and peace!

The Underground Spring

Mountains and Rivers 401

My heart was the hardened earth,

a soul filled with rocks, dry sand,

but you saw something,

under the surface, and started digging,

you told me I had gold,

but I didn’t believe you,

until I trusted, until you showed me,

the water, flowing from your heart,

and I could sing.

My sand turned,

into healthy soil,

rocks made smooth,

receiving the water, and the sun,

born again,

green began to grow,

and I was alive,

and understanding,

the Creator.

Do you know how much that means?

Forever flourishing,

from the underground spring,

and loving you, for always.

Blessings to everyone and peace!

“If you love nature, you will love people.”

The View from Our Window

Maine and More 255

Tonight more than any other night,

let’s sit by the window,

so we can take in,

the water, the coastline.

I will always remember Maine,

hiding in our bungalow,

your face reflecting the sun.

Is roast beef ok?

Lost, staring at each other,

remembering the single rose,

on our first date,

I hand you another one.

Hearts melting,

I take your hand in mine,

and bring it to my face,

tears streaming,

flooded with love for you.

I guess the roast beef can wait,

as we close the curtains,

and pull down the shades,

our lips find each other.

Happy Anniversary sweetheart,

you know I love you,

tears and kisses blending,

My Love.

Note: This is about an anniversary celebration from years past. It’s not our anniversary today, but sometimes I do look back on this.

Blessings to everyone and peace!

Eternal Hearts

space 3

When they find our bones,

one million years from now,

will they see our love etched?

Will they be able to measure our heart cries,

with scientific instruments?

our echoes in the stars.

They say there is no marriage in heaven,

but I wonder if He would reconsider,

make an exception, for these two souls,

temporary bones, but eternal hearts.

I’m not ready for false teeth,

and we still have the spark,

but whenever we do meet in heaven,

may our spirits join hands,

as we bow, in the light,

before our Creator.

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

“If you love nature, you will love people.”

The Picnic

picnic

We were young in August,

before the fall,

there was no winter,

under the shade.

The leaves were plump,

dressed in green,

living moisture, hiding the sun.

Smiling as we set up our blanket,

grapes my dear?

basket full, and waiting,

waiting for each other,

for bread,

we looked at the water,

and dreamed of boats,

of being carried away,

with the wind tussling,

our hair,

being pulled this way and that,

over the waves,

until the shore,

then resting, in the sun.

We were filled,

four arms for hugging,

no longer hiding,

and positive,

it would always be this way,

until there was no moon.

moon at night

 Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

Living the Poem

green heart and sky

You have taught me in so many ways,

how to live the poem,

your white light bright,

leading the blind,

on a real path, the two of us,

sometimes a movie is more important,

than writing about love,

holding hands,

or talking when we come home,

a bowl of ice cream,

sitting on the front porch,

where love is real, tangible,

alive,

sharing our dreams.

Where do you want to go for vacation?

the beach?

Honestly, I don’t care,

as long as I’m with you,

living the dream, the poem,

where love has a face, a soul,

Do you know what happens,

when you smile at me?

My universe expands,

hold me,

or I’ll end up in the sky again,

I love being on the earth,

with you, My Love.

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

“If you love nature, you will love people.”
